Mo Salah’s agent has angered Liverpool fans with his reaction to the strikers replacement against Chelsea on Thursday night.
The Premier League champions trailed at Anfield after Mason Mount’s opener in the first half when Jurgen Klopp made the surprising decision to replace Salah after just 62 minutes.
Salah was clearly unhappy with the call, as television cameras caught the Egyptian international repeatedly shaking his head on the Liverpool bench.
And Salah’s manager, Ramy Abbas Issa, also showed his displeasure at Klopp’s decision when he posted a full stop on Twitter just minutes after the forward was.

However, Liverpool supporters were quick to criticize Salah’s agent for his reaction to his replacement.
One Liverpool fans replied: “You know your player isn’t bigger than this club, right? He didn’t make LFC the legendary club that it is, right? And this attitude is unprofessional and absolute bulls***, yeah???”
Another Liverpool supporter replied: “You’re his agent and you’re literally making things worse for your client, hope the little bit of attention is worth it.”
“This is what happens when agents get paid too much money for transfers, they get loud and push agendas.” wrote a third Liverpool fan.
Salah has already shown his displeasure towards Klopp earlier this season when he was substituted in the 1-1 draw with Brighton in November.
When asked if he encourages Klopp to rotate his attackers during an interview with beIN Sports in January, Salah said: “This is a very difficult question for me to answer.
“I want to play every minute I can play. ‘But I cannot discuss this because it has to do with the tactics and viewpoint of the coach.
“But if you are asking me about my opinion, I like to play in every match, the full 90 minutes, and even 95 minutes.”
